Now multiply that by the amount of items in your order and it becomes very complicated especially if the items are from different sources. Plus, weekends are essentially dead times for shipping.

I'm not saying that your frsutration is not warranted, but you have to look at both sides of the situation. I've been involved in warehouse/internet shipping before and it is a very complicated process to fulfill large orders with such a big inventory of items.
Apparently, patience is not a virtue . Perhaps this will make you feel better. I placed an order for a dvd on June 22nd during DDD's last sale. That DVD just shipped on Friday, November 7th (almost 5 months- not too bad)

Best Buy has a bonus disc. Was only $11.99 last week, so I jumped on it. Dunno what the regular price is, but it still might be worth getting there cuz of the bonus disc.

I ordered it this morning without a problem, but you're right, it isn't working now.

DVD008019 BLR : THE CHUNGKING EXPRESS WITH $ 20.89
1 HVD000003 CRITERION T-SHIRT (XL) $
Wow, thanks for this. Chungking Express doesn't street until 11/25, making it ineligible for the sale. However, the 25% off code currently works on the version that comes with a free t-shirt. Good find.

It really really sucks the T-shirt ONLY comes with the Blu-ray version of the film. Oh well.

If anyone is ordering the Hellboy 2 3 disc, it's only $17.99 at Amazon at the moment. Of course, you'll need to order more to hit free shipping.

Ordered The Car and Brotherhood of the Wolf: DC for $21.97. I'll probably try going to DVD Planet for the Hellboy II BR giftset I was hoping to order. What's the deal with that?

I've made two orders with Deep Discount in this sale, and here's what I got!

Order 1:
Pushing Daisies Season 1
The Tudors Season 1

Order 2:
Dexter Seasons 1 and 2
House Seasons 1-4 Collect
Kashimashi Girl Meets Girl DVD Boxset


That should be enough for now. If I keep going, I'll never be able to watch everything I ordered.

Why are the SD Criterions more expensive than the BDs? I don't have Blu-Ray and probably won't for quite some time --- why should I pay more for less? Ugh.

Because DD's pricing on Criterion dvd's is all over the place.

Just dont get them through Deep Discount. This experience has been dreadful for me. Between Best Buy and Amazon, I'll be just fine.

For reason, DD doesn't have the releases that come with free T-shirts marked as preorders. For example, the code won't work on Chungking Express by itself, but it will work on the version that says it comes with a T-shirt.

DD and DVD Planet are definitely cheaper right now than Amazon or BB on Criterions if you use the 25% off code. They come out to just over $20 apiece.

I was about to ask that as well. The code worked for Donald volume 2 but not with volume 4. Out of curiosity, I e-mailed DD about it.

Are you nuts!!!?? I'd never wait that long for an order. I've got 3 items left at DD and one on DVDP that are backordered. If they don't ship by the end of the month I'm ordering them elsewhere.

How do you know the Criterions with the t-shirt are the Blu-rays? I don't see that listed anywhere.

They show up in the Hi def section, and it says this in the first line of the description: Includes FREE Criterion T-Shirt with Blu ray purchase!
